A note from Ben Pearson, Hydrobiology

My Story

So I’ve done it again. I’ve signed up for my second smiddy challenge. Why you may ask? I had several inspirations for doing my first challenge having had several family and friends pass in recent times from various forms of cancer. After doing the challenge, meeting Sharky and the wonderful Smiddy family and seeing the amazing things that come about from the money we raise I couldn’t resist getting involved again. This is a cause that is very close to my heart. Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the ‘Give Now’ button. The more people that know about Smiling for Smiddy, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
